I could have missed one or two, and maybe some of these slipped through the copyright cracks, but I'm sure most of them still belong to their original publishers (The DC and Harvey comics for sure!) or the people that licensed them to the comic book publishers (Such as Green Hornet and Lone Ranger). Somebody needs to explain to this poster that a PD CHARACTER and a PD COMIC of that character are two seperate things, as well.

skybandit,

For example I can find no copyright registrations for any annie oakley comics; so how did you decide that they were not in the Public Domain?

Probably most of them are in the public domain if issued before 1964.

Did you actually check the copyright registrations on all of these comics. Just because it has a copyright notice does not mean that it is copyrighted. I have put up some comics and have carefully checked for renewals and found that with the exception of the D.C. comics many of the copyrights were never renewed on issues before 1964.

If items are proven to be under copyright protections, they should be archived off site, but not deleted.
